NG: Lost Roman Codex Fragments Found

Lost Roman Codex Fragments Found in Book Binding
National Geographic Daily News - 2010 Feb 03
Fragments of a lost ancient Roman law text have been rediscovered in the scrap paper used to bind other books.

The Codex Gregorianus, or Gregorian Code, was compiled by an otherwise unknown man named Gregorius at the end of the third century A.D. It started a centuries-long tradition of collecting Roman emperors' laws in a single manuscript.

The Codex Gregorianus covered the laws of Hadrian, who ruled from A.D. 117 to 138, to those of Diocletian, ruler from A.D. 284 to 305.

Shouldn't that be "Oh my Gods :!: "
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
